Not the case.
With Hannah dressed in her pumpkin t-shirt and orange socks we strolled through the UWS to see plenty of children popping into stores (from banks to depanneurs) in search of treats. And then we hit 69th street.
Two city avenues closed to traffic, haunted houses abound, this street is the definite life of the UWS party. Even though we're tourists, there was a real sense of neighbourhood and community. And some pretty funny costumes.
The most notable? A little girl dressed as a Fresh Direct delivery person, complete with a cart filled with boxes. Too cute!
Definitely a memorable way to spend Hannah's first Halloween.
